Losing Weight and Saving Money

You all know that I have been working on losing weight. I have lost 25lbs so far and feeling great. One thing that has really helped is the fact that I am fully stocked on my multi-vitamins from a bodybuilding website that I found not to long ago. This bodybuilding website is called This site has all of the great brands at a fraction of the price. I use to have a site that I would always buy my supplements from but when this site came up, I just couldn’t turn them away. They carry over 150 brands giving them access to over 2000 different products. Now what store online could say that and keep a straight face. I make sure that I by my whey protein and my creatine from them because with them I am saving over 25%. Now that you have heard my testimony, give this bodybuilding website a try.

Dennis Leary - Traditional Irish Folk Song

In the spirit of St. Patricks Day I thought this might be a funny song for everyone to enjoy.

Eat when you are mad

DO NOT DO IT! I just got done eating a lot of peanuts and it did not make me feel good even though I wanted to do it so I can feel good. I will talk more about this in the future.

Health Insurance for YOURSELFand the FAMILY

Health insurance can be looked at as a dreadful thing to get, but if you had the insurance you and your loved ones will be covered in case of an emergency. My family is covered and I can rest assured that if I get into an accident I know that I will pass on and my family can move on without issues or problems, financially. You can get online insurance quotes and see what you would be willing to spend to get the coverage for yourself and family.

I cannot express this enough. Just play the "what-if" game and you will see where things could go wrong.

Eat Measureable

In the last couple days I have been eating food that I cannot measure accurately. This posses a problem because then I do not know how much I am taking in. You know me, I love data so I can measure my inputs and outputs. What is nerve racking though is the fact that I am swinging up for weight which I should be maintaining my downward slope for weight. The weekend is coming up so I am thinking about eating high calorie this weekend and then on Monday, start all over and eat low calorie. I hope to see my weight drop to 247 or lower. We will see

Video Games for the Phone

I recently got a Moto Q which allows me to be on the internet and manage my calendar. It also has a good size display to be able to play video games on the phone.

I recently came across an older game (1990) that recently made it to the phones, it is called Dangerous Dave Mobile. You are to travel through the mansion full of evil spirits, ghouls, and other threats in search for your missing brother. I have the trial game on my phone and I am going to order the game after the trial is up. If you want to try the trial version then you can go to the Official Dangerous Dave Mobile website and download the game for your phone. The graphics are awesome even from a phone's point of view. The graphics are great and so is the sound quality. The experience that you have with this game will all depend on the phone that you have. I like to play games as a nice cool down from working out or while I am waiting for my wife and kids. Let me know what you think of the game.

Lost 22lbs since January 1st.

It has taken me 2.5 months to lose 22lbs and I feel great and everyone tells me that I look like I have been losing weight. Before I took on this challenge to lose the weight I was afraid of losing my strength during the process. I have lost zero strength throughout this entire thing. I actually had a great heavy day on Monday and increased my dead-lift by 75lbs. I was amazed that I had that much of an increase even though I have cut down my quantity of food. I eat 6-7 times a day and eat a lot of protein, but at no point have I lost any strength or muscle. I love it.

Habits form in 21 days.

Because I have been eating cookies and some other junk food, it is going to be hard to stay away from that stuff all this week. I am waiting here at a Saturn's dealership to get my free oil change and they are cooking cookies...the good kind. You know, the kind that was made with real butter and the sugar is just filling the room. I am only having coffee because that is going to be my treat from this stuff. I had some fruit at the house before I came over so I am good on my sugar needs but they sure do smell good.

This last weekend I have been eating to much and also pies and much of those too. I see this coming week to be a little difficult to stay on track but I have to be strong and keep on track. It does take 21 days to form a habit and those habits have been in place for over 60 days so I think going off of the wagon for a short while will not hurt anything.

Stay On Track!

It is hard to lose the weight (currently 20lbs lost) but it is even harder to stay on track and not enduldge in sweets and junk foods. My grandfather-in-law past away and we came back home to see all of the family and be around for the funeral. While coming up, we stopped at Arby's and I almost justified the fact of getting a burger or at least some kind of roast beff. I ended up turning both of those down and got a salad with no dressing...but it was hard. My wife actually helped a little with keeping me on track even though she got a roast beef sandwhich. But I tell ya, you really need to avoid all of this if you want to make it easy to stay on track. It is almost impossible to stay the coarse with these obsticles in the way.

Just remember your goals and try to reach them with no excuse.
